    I had an extra flywheel made for the Lexus build. So we are moving along. Also got the bell housing I needed to start making drawings from.

    Is that just a regular Automatic bell housing that your going to adapt? @JoeDrifter Or something custom made? Either way, i'm staying tuned...

    Check cruiserparts.com under the non-usa and diesel section, they have some H151 stuff.

    For the steering box, I would run a FJ60/62 or FZJ80 box, it mounts outside of framerail and is forward swing.

    Usually the V8 runs about 4-6k USD.

    I am looking forward to seeing more updates of your build. I am curious to know if you ended up ordering a h151f that was designed to come behind the 2uz. I would be interested in knowing what the total cost to get it to your door was. I am building a 2uz with a h151f but the h151f I have came behind a 1fzfe and the input shaft is shorter so I have to switch it out. This means I have to take it apart and I not looking forward to that.

    I was going to use the H151F but now going the H55 now. It's the same money as the H151f and yet it's new. Easier to source too.

    I have an H151 that is going behind a 2UZ in my 1966 FJ45LV (if I ever get to it). I got the transmission out of Australia, it was behind a 2UZ. My 2UZ is US spec.

    The only H151 I could find was almost 3k. The H55 is just over 2k brand new. Plus if my adapter fits the H55 it should fit the 4 speed FJs as well. So we will see. I have read good things about the H55. From what I have read people have had some issues with the H151. That being said the H55 should be perfect for what I am trying to do. At this point with Icon asking 200k for their custom builds I think I am going to have to lay low a little till my build is done. If they are actually fetching 200k for their builds then this one should be well over that.

    Woytovich, I don't want to derail JoeDrifters thread so I will send you a private message. I want to ask you more about your h151f.

    JoeDrifter, I will look forward to seeing your completed project. It amazes me that there is a market big enough to continually support Icon builds. I think their rigs are cool just expensive for as simple as they seem. Good for them though.
